StampARTic challenge

There is a gorgeous sketch this week at StampARTic challenge, perfect for using one of my new hAnglars! My lovely hubby got me this set as a surprise - I am soooo lucky!!! I have used Cappella papers from Basic Grey, distressed with Walnut Stain distress ink and stickles.

I have coloured the image with distress inks. The image mat is distressed with weathered wood distress ink and stickles. I stamped a Stempelglede grunge stamp on the corners of the three diagonal elements using weathered wood distress ink.

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, sprayed with glimmer mist.

The ribbon is from my stash and the gorgeous lace is from Running with Scissors, a local craft shop. I have written the sentiment myself with my calligraphy pen and cut it with a nestie. As I was adding the stickles to my card it dawned on me that the nestie shape matched the shape of the handbag she's holding (completely by accident!!) and so I added a small gem heart to match the heart button on her bag!

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Hi Jayne
another lovely card, I had to laugh when I saw that you had wrote that your husband had surprized you with this set of stamps, as my husband had done exactly that. I entered a blog candy to win this set of stamp's, and I was so upset (when of course I didn't win, because I never win anything)lol, and my lovely hubby found out that they were on ebay and surprized me with them, I still havn't got over the shock lol.

Hi Jane,
How fab your hubby doing that, he is lovely.
I love this image, I too have tried to get a few of these stamps with no joy, such a shame when you love something so much. I will keep trying but don't hold out much hope.
This is a gorgeous card, love the stickles round the edge, very vintage, you do do that so well. Perfect. Debbiexx
